Wendi wastes a turn w/ the BANKRUPT next to $650. Second, Audrey says a $700 T and gets the other normal BANKRUPT. Third, Jason picks up the spafinder.com gift tag w/ three N’s, lights up R and D singles (the latter was on $2,500), and buys some vowels, but the E isn’t there. Wendi tries again w/ five S’s and two I’s, but next is a dud in C. After she cleans out the vowels, Audrey FPs twin P’s…

Round 4: PHRASE

Wendi starts w/ S for sorry. Second, Audrey FPs two E’s, says three T’s while on $5K, but then repeats the S. Third, Jason does some work, but then says L for loss of turn. Wendi then fills in the rest of the consonants…
